My Experience at Branson Academic - Prep for English II
By Rakesh Shah, junior, Branson
When I singed up to for Branson’s Summer English II camp, the only thing that concerned me was becoming a better writer. I communicated my intentions to the course instructor, Branson English teacher Bijani Mizell, who convinced me over the two weeks that the class was about more than that.
After reading a sample piece I wrote, she pointed out that my analysis needed work; more writing practice wasn’t all I needed. Reading, she said, was just as important as writing, if not more so. Just by improving my close reading and analytical abilities, I noticed my writing improve tremendously. By the end of the two weeks, I not only learned to become a better writer, but also a better reader. Without Branson’s Summer English II Camp, I’m sure I wouldn’t be as successful of a student as I am today.
